ST. CATHARINES, ONT.—Kraun Electric is celebrating 25 years in business this year and has officially launched its rebrand, which includes new logos for both the ICI and residential divisions, new brand colours, new taglines and a reinvigorated company vision.
Kraun Electric was founded by John and Irma Krause, son Kevin Krause and daughter Kelly Braun in 1996. The name Kraun comes from a blend of their surnames “Krause” and “Braun.” The company started with four employees in the office and a few more in the field but since then has grown significantly now employing 100 people full-time. It also expanded into the residential market in 2013.
Some of the company’s most notable projects include the First Ontario Performing Arts Centre, Nora Frances Henderson Secondary School, the Mohawk College Fennel Campus Solar Carport and the Queenston-Lewiston Bridge redevelopment.
Today, the company excels in electric vehicle charging and home automation installations, design-build services, and new preventative maintenance programs for customers, indicates a release.
Kraun Electric president/CEO and co-owner Aaron Jones is a licensed electrician who started with the company as a general labourer 18 years ago and worked his way up, becoming an owner in 2018.
“After 25 years and new ownership, we wanted to take a fresh look and carry a bold vision into the future,” said Jones in a statement. “The spark in our new logo represents electricity, but it also represents the potential that we have. Potential is, literally, what makes a spark jump the gap. Electric potential drives the world now. Kraun’s future is bright. We are powering potential for our employees and our customers.”
Kraun is looking for people to join their team and is now hiring licensed 309a electricians for construction, service and residential settings in Hamilton and Niagara.
